Ways to Support the Program
Building Futures Fund – a financial support mechanism created to ensure long-term funding to sustain the Careers in Construction program. Funds raised will be used to supplement the needs of the school districts directly supporting this program, including items such as tools, curriculum, and construction materials. More information about the Building Futures Fund and on permit-based donations is provided upon pulling a building permit in El Paso County.
Donating to this fund directly supports a program helping grow a skilled construction workforce, while also offering promising careers for young adults in the Colorado Springs community.
Investments are as follows:
Remodel/Alterations – $6.00/permit
New Residential – $25.00/permit
New Commercial – $50.00/permit
Commercial Remodel/Alterations (over $20k) – $50.00/permit
Financial Contributions – Make a one-time or recurring financial contribution. Funds will be used to supplement the needs of the school districts participating in the program.
Tools & Materials – Donate new tools or construction materials to be used in the classroom for building projects.
Mentoring – Volunteer to share your knowledge and experience with students in the classrooms, at career fairs and other events.
Job Site Visit – Provide students an opportunity to experience and understand the everyday functions of a career in construction by offering a field trip to your jobsite. We also recommend allowing time for a Q&A session with your construction team, this offers students insight into the different roles and responsibilities of construction workers.
